PlanePlotter Trouble


#1

This is the latest PlanePlotter problem:

Another site (Site 2564 - KINT) came online on 21 Oct 2014 and went “Live” .
My site (site 1692 - KINT) went down about the same time. When I look a my location (36.01576 -80.38299)
and (Site 2564 - KINT) it maps to the very same location on the web page for both him and me. PlanePlotter works
correct when I run the Test Networking, however I can no longer see my status on the web page… HELP PLEASE.

Can PiAware run on Windows 7? I’m running PlanePlotter and it keeps having one problem after another, therefore I’m looking to move to PiAware if possible.

If this is an issue with Planeplotter, have you posted your question to the yahoo planeplotter group at
groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/planeplotter/info
?

Sorry, I don’t do Yahoo… I think the problem started when Site 2564 - KINT went Live yesterday and his GPS location is right on top of me (less than 1/4 mile). PlanePlotter, FlightAware, or both?

I understand about Yahoo, I woouldn’t if I could avoid it. Is your Planeplotter account registered? Are you running as a PP groundstation?

I did have an instance where someone in China oopsied on Long and was off by 180, which put the location a few miles from mine. The site was claimed before I got to it. It took a while to resolve.

FYI there is a new Planeplotter forum as an adjunct/alternative to Yahoo at: planeplotterforum.co.uk/

Is your Planeplotter account registered? Are you running as a PP groundstation? … PLEASE, YES TO BOTH.
Site 2564 is reporting data for my site 1692.

Hi,

Yes, I know: “kO” got changed to “mX” when the COAA server crashed (see email below), however it was working until Site 2564 - KINT came online on 21 November 2014. I checked again this morning and Site 2564 had changed from KINT to LIDA but is still see my ADS-B data. I can tell from the Coverage Distribution pie chart and the fact that a site in Italy is reporting data over central North Carolina in the United States… I don’t think so.

Please give me a call at 1.336.766.xxxx so we can get this knot untied.

Best Regards,
Richard Wooten

Hi Richard,

It may be better to ask FlightAware this question as I am not familiar with the way they do things.

After the server collapse a couple of weeks ago, most share codes changed and I know FA index users by the share code so they may not have registered the fact that your share code may be different from teh share code that you originally registered with them.
